New Highway to Ochi

written by owen, Tue, 13th Sep 2016 at 6:25 pm

Last weekend I took a trip on the new leg of the highway to Ochi Rios before the toll prices increase yet again. I must say that I am disappointed with the speed limits on this thing, 80 kmph on flats, 60 around corners is just unacceptable for the amount of money you have to shell out.

It was not cheap to build, I counted at least 12 mountains that had to be cut straight through. Got to applaud the chinese for there tenacity in doing difficult things.

I paid 920$ each way for a car. Only advantage is you get to Ochi in 1 hour mash driving at the speed limit, skip both Mount Rosso and Flat Bridge.

Look out for speed traps. Anyway pics below.

Extra Lights

While driving (being driven) around in Barbados I noticed that they had tons of extra stop lights and arrow lights. Considering that they don't drive that fast and are really patient it is quiet surprising.

I've always wondered how profitable it was.
